I don’t have an official bridal party, but my best friend has been absolutely amazing and instumental in helping me plan my wedding, is hosting my bridal shower and helping to organize my bachelorette – all while being pregnant with her second baby!
I’d like to get her something to show my thanks, but she has EVERYTHING, and super expensive taste. Ie her closet is stocked with Celine, Chanel & LV bags, Loub shoes etc.
Any ideas on something unique that won’t completely break the bank? She already has a Burberry scarf (I was thinking of getting one and having it monogrammed for her) but I’m running out of ideas, and am worried a small piece of jewelry from Tiffany’s isn’t her style… Thoughts? I’d like to keep it to around $250CAD if possible.

Gift certificate for massage? I have no kids but I’ve read a couple times that pregnant women like them.

busybee86 : instead of getting her a THING, how about getting her an experience? concert tickets, tickets to a broadway show, gift card to a nice restaurant, museum tickets, hell even movie ticket vouchers! i’d probably also give her a really nice framed picture of the two of you as well to celebrate your friendship. if you have a good one you like already, use that – but otherwise make sure to get your photographer to snap a special pic of the two of you at the wedding. i’ve framed a whole bunch of wedding pics (and gifts) using Framebridge. they’re awesome! i have a coupon code for $20 off your first picture order if you PM me (i dont think i can post it here because of TOS). they’re custom framed gifts start at $39, so with the coupon you can get a custom framed pic of you two for under $20 #win

busybee86 : With her pregnancy in mind, I suggest a gift that would pamper her and somehow suggest a cozy feeling. A beautiful bath robe could be an option, or a room fragrance spray. Just a couple of examples, from Amara:
At $66.00 USD:
At $125.00 USD:
Amara does have many other lovely options.

You should just write her a nice heartfelt thank you note! Words can mean more than things, especially when she already has all the possessions she could want. I also like the idea of a picture of the 2 of you.

busybee86 : Something custom made from Etsy? I think if she already has a lot of designer things, you might strike a better cord with gifts that are unique/specifically made for her, something she wouldn’t get herself…etc.

I’d shy away from fragrance while she’s pregnant. I’m currently pregnant and I’ve had to stop wearing perfume entirely. It’s soooo much stronger now and gives me a massive headache.
Kate Spade makes a lot of cute trinkets that aren’t apparel or handbags that are really cute. I’m sure you can find something adorable for her on their website.

Well I am buying my niece a tiffany necklace that runs for $150, she is 19, it is her first time being in a wedding as a non-flower girl and I wanted to give her something really special, besides I adore that lady to death.
and for my BFF (also my MOH) who is a disney nerd I am buying her a Dooney & Bourke Disney handbag.
We have a very small wedding party, so I wanted to make the gifts really individual and important.

Spa day and offer to babysit! She sounds as if she may be particular about “things” — echoing PPs suggestion of experiences. If you don’t think she would enjoy a pampering session how about some gift cards to her favorite restaurants for after she has the baby along with a heartfelt card and photo?
